February's exbibition features the photography of Heather Jacks, Darlene Towson and Andrew Wohl.
Heather Jacks is an award-winning photographer who currently lives in Maryland. She refers to her art is an exploration of light and shadow and the ever-changing interplay between the two. She works in both traditional and digital techniques, often using digital negatives to practice some of the oldest photographic processes. Techniques such as infrared photography, hand applied emulsions, photographic transfers and photopolymer gravure are a few of the techniques Jacks practices. Her work has been exhibited internationally, and is held in numerous private collections. Heather works with the fine art publishers CAP and Winn Devon, and is a member of the Maryland Federation of Art and the Foundry Gallery.
Darlene Towson is an editorial and fine art photographer. She documents complex aesthetic ideas through careful control of composition, focus, lighting and editing. Using both skill and feminine intuition, many traditional tropes are removed to create images that are intense in color and dramatic in expressing socio-political influence, the beauty of natural elements, and highlight moments often ignored in everyday life. Towson relies more on organic methods while allowing technology to enhance her processes. As such, she produces in a number of mediums, including dye-based inks on cotton, acrylic face mounts, and metal.
Andrew Wohl was educated in the sciences, but always had an eye for the aesthetic. Largely self-taught, his early pursuits in fine art photography have garnered shows at the Kentlands Mansion, Strathmore Center for the Performing Arts, Hickok Cole Art Night and the Chastleton Ballroom in the Greater Washington, D.C. area. He has also received awards from the Vienna, Virginia Photographic Society and his work has been acquired both commercially and privately.
